Hi David,

That is good to know. You would probably be interested in reviewing
and/or experimenting with our code:

Thanks for your interest,

I would't actually agree that support for adoption is required; that comes when we want to discuss adoption. And for adoption, on a mailing list with 1000 people, of which 100-200 show up at meetings, four (and with the author, five) doesn't constitute a consensus. What I have told you is that people need to show operational interest in the draft - "this would be useful in my environment". What the chairs are looking for in the case of pdhost is people saying "that would be a useful model for me to deploy in my data center or other environment".

I'll say I'm interested in the deployment model of assigning hosts whole /64 prefixes. I'm pushing my vendors (router and WiFi systems) to support RFC8273 now. I'd actaully prefer a DHCPv6-PD in the host model.  However, until at least one large OS vendor includes this capability in their base software, deployment in my campus environment is pointless.

So please count me as operationally interested in this model, I'm not yet ready to say this draft is the one that should carry the torch for the model, but I have a great interest in the model of DHCPv6-PD to the host.
